Georgia Participant Testimonial 2017

“A staff member was working with a mom who had latch issues. The mom was concerned about a “sore” that had come up on the baby’s chest. The Peer Counselor looked at it and then came to have me look at it since it was outside her scope. We encouraged the mom to call the Pediatrician. When the doctor looked at it, he immediately referred the infant to a specialist. The infant was admitted to the children’s hospital for a possible ruptured cyst. The peer counselor was in constant contact with the mom to help her through the crisis. The client told us that she could not imagine going through this situation without her. She now has a friend for life.” — WIC Employee, Georgia
